St James's is a central district in London in the City of Westminster, forming part of the West End. In the 17th century the area developed as a residential location for the British aristocracy and around the 19th century formed the focus of the development of gentlemen's clubs. Anciently part of the parish of St Martin in the Fields, much of it formed the parish of St James from 1685 to 1922. Since the Second World War the area has transitioned from residential to commercial use. It is bounded to the north by Piccadilly, to the west by Green Park, to the south by The Mall and St. James's Park and to the east by Haymarket.
Notable streets include:
• St James's Square, which retains many of its original houses but is mostly in office use. The London Library is located there.
• Jermyn Street, an upmarket retail street best known for its bespoke shirtmakers and shops offering the finest gentlemen's attire.
• Pall Mall, which contains many of London's most venerable gentlemen's clubs.
• Haymarket was once the best known centre of prostitution in London, but no trace of this remains now. It contains two of London's most historic theatres: the Haymarket Theatre and Her Majesty's Theatre.
• Carlton House Terrace, a pair of grand terraces of houses designed by John Nash overlooking St. James's Park.
• St James's Street which runs down from Piccadilly to St James's Palace.
